Review: InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel

First Impressions:
From reading the description, the InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel is supposed to help reduce dark circles, puffiness, and increase skin elasticity while enhancing skin tone. It also claims to help with skin sagging so I guess it would be good to apply it on the neck area as well.

The InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel comes in a bottle with a removable cap. When you take the cap off, it is a pump mechanism bottle. The bottle is completely white so you can't see the gel inside. The color of the gel is clear and gooey and has a cucumber scent.

Active Ingredients:
- Hyaluronic Acid: Promotes moisture retention in skin
- Plant Stem Cells: Not sure if this helps with anything
- Peptide Complex: Signals your body to produce more collagen = supple skin
- Matrixyl Complex: Anti-aging ingredient for wrinkles
- Amino Acid Complex: Nourishes the skin

*This product contains tree nuts.

InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel - Ingredients

When using the InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel the first time, I had to press the pump about 10 times to get the product out. I thought I was sent a defective bottle but eventually the gel finally came up.

The amount I got from one pump pressing all the way down was too much for just my undereye area so I ended up using it on my whole face. When you use this yourself, pressing softly down for 1 second should give the adequate amount for just the undereye. On the bottle it says you can apply this to the under eye, forehead, and cheek areas or even entirely on your face. It says it is safe to use both morning and night.

It feels a little bit sticky on the parts of my face that I put the product. It doesn't evaporate completely like the InstaNatural Pure Vitamin C Toner or the InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum. There is no skin tightness either so it doesn't feel like I am wearing a mask with the InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel all over my face.

I didn't see an immediate difference in my undereye area in relation to reducing puffiness after applying this at night. However, the next morning my eyes looked less puffy compared to if I didn't use this eye cream. If you know you want a under eye de-puffer then this could be it. I didn't see much change in my dark circles from using this for one night.

Final Thoughts:
Maybe it's an eye serum that will allow you to see results over a period of time for dark circles and fine lines. I think because of it being a little bit sticky, if you do wear a concealer or foundation on top then it might lead to caking and creasing.

If I continue to use this product, I would use it mostly at night or in the daytime on days I don't wear makeup. The dry spots on my face still felt dry after applying the InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel so I don't think it does much for moisturization.

I thought this was an okay product but nothing really amazing if you want instant gratification. Only time will tell if this really works. I'll return to add an update to this post if there's a change in my skin from using this for a couple days.

I like that this product is made with 100% natural and organic ingredients but if you have allergies to tree nuts then this product is not for you.

On the Amazon product page for this product, the company InstaNatural has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on this so if for any reason you are unhappy they will issue a refund. I just noticed that it is (as of 12/4/2014) listed as the #1 Best Seller in Eye Puffiness Treatments on Amazon so maybe it does work.

Overall Rating: 3/5
Affordability: 3 - Effectiveness: 3 - Packaging: 3

  1. I also find the eye creams that do not absorb definitely lead to creasing, which I hate!

    1. Yeah Angela, I hate it too when it happens! Hard to find one that can be worn underneath makeup. :(
